ONEIDA COUNTY- Nearly 24 hour after Friday night’s severe thunderstorm several residents across the area are still cleaning up debris. Through Madison and Oneida County, thousands of homeowners were affected.

“We were watching the local news and then the warnings went off,” said Alison Dikar of Cassville. “We thought it was just another storm and then the hail started pelting off the windows.”

Without hesitation, Dikar took her kids and went for cover in the basement of her house.

“We were scared and went downstairs. We came out to find all of the trees around our house down and are swingset in our pool,” said Dikar.

The storm also did knock down power lines leaving 1,000 customers without power.

“We spoke with a rep from the power company New York Power and Gas,” said Kevin Revere, Director of Oneida County Emergency Services. “And this was earlier today around noon and there were about 1,000 customers out.”

Overnight local fire departments were on the roads helping to clear trees and watch down power lines. According to Revere, the town highway and the state DOT was out in full force as well.

“Right now everything is open and cleared off,” said Revere. “All that we are waiting for is for the power to be restored and move on from this storm.”
